This Fuerte in Marbella is an excellent beachfront hotel. We found it based on the good reviews here on Tripadvisor. We enjoyed each day there, and would love to return one day. At the desk upon entering we were greeted with a smile, by Nancy, who helped us throughout our stay. All the staff we met were positive and totally helpful.
We booked a double room with front seaview, requesting a higher floor. Room 434 in the newer building suited us nicely. The front seaview balcony was fantastic! It was a WOW! The room was quiet, beds comfortable, had a nice bath area, and was very, very clean.
The hotel is one of the oldest in Marbella, but looks beautiful, and well maintained. A palace!!! It's always good to see the gardeners, cleaning and maintence staff all doing their work through the day. Liked the secured stairs and elevators.
The two pools were great, with the sea as your background. One pool for the family, and one with swimming lanes for laps. Good! Plenty of chaises too.
Easy access through the gate onto the long esplanade, and to go across to the beach plus beach restaurant. Ate there 2 times, see my other review. It was really good.
The main restaurant & bar were great for the breakfast buffets, and meals & drinks later in the day, even outside.
If you have a car use the easy parking lot for a fair $12E daily. Seemed a difficult area for parking on the outside.
The hotel is on the Golden Mile of the esplanade. Tons of activity any time of the day or evening for all ages. Tons of food, drink, stores, activities, etc., and of course----ahhhh the beach. The beautiful Marbella shore.
Overall, this is one great hotel. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Cheers! --------- Ken
